Lion didn’t have any meetings today so we’ve been off exploring together. We slept till 10 and I completely forgot about writing a post until Lion said he had to write his for tomorrow.

We were tired last night and Lion wasn’t horny anyway. We snuggled a bit but Lion has been itchy. Since the dog isn’t with us, I suspect the sheets on the bed. I assume hotels know enough to use detergent free from perfumes and dyes but something is bothering him. And then we both had trouble sleeping.

Lion has been on his best behavior since the hairbrush paddle showed up. He’s been keeping a watchful eye on me to make sure I eat first or give him permission to eat first. He’s been doing a good job of not spilling food on himself. He doesn’t want to meet up with that paddle.

We’ve been doing a lot of walking and neither of us is used to that. It’s good for us but difficult. We cancelled one part of our plans for tonight so we can save our aching paws for a long day tomorrow. We have a walking tour. A multi-hour walking tour. We have no idea how far we’ll make it. We may have to arrange to meet up with the group after we rest a bit. “We’ll meet you at the corner of X Ave and Y Street in twenty minutes.” We’ll give it our best shot and see how it goes.

Tonight we’ll have dinner and snuggle together for an early night. We’ve got a long day ahead of us.
